It is clear to everybody now that homosexuality is not a choice or an option. It is the way someone is born. It is their in-built and default design. It is their nature which they cannot resist.

But, there is a question that is still awaiting to be addressed. If homosexuality is natural, why is it treated like a criminal act in some countries and a sin in some religions? If a fish does not go to jail for swimming and a bird does not go to hell for flying, why do homosexuals?

And if it is a sin, why did mother nature made us this way?

Homosexuality is one of the most controversial subjects of all time. On one side, God or nature, whatever you want to name it, created us Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual, Pansexual (LGBTQIAP+), and on the other side, it does not allow us to practice and express our sexuality.

The disapproval and condemnation of homosexual practices by some people, spiritual organizations, and countries make many people question themselves if practicing homosexuality is a sin.

Hello Fellow Members,

I’m 48 years old. I have had the opportunity to experience most of the aspects of living my life as a homosexual.

After having lived a gay lifestyle for many years, I have decided to live a celibate life.

As I grew older and my life progressed, I came across some articles on the internet reading, which made me realize that some of the holy scriptures prohibited certain homosexual practices.

According to my experience and observation, I have concluded that God’s prohibition of certain homosexual acts is right, logical, and favorable to us.

I am not an expert on religion, and hence I do not have the knowledge to comment on whether practicing homosexuality is a sin or not. But I very strongly feel that some of the homosexual acts might be immoral, filthy, and most of all, unhealthy. One may consider having sex in public toilets which are also used by children as an example.

Such acts may put society off of the LGBT community and further push them towards not accepting us.

We should put good stuff on display to pave society’s path towards accepting LGBT rather than further hindering it.

In light of my personal experience, I can tell you that I have found my inner peace, and I am really happy that I am not living an unhealthy lifestyle anymore.

I would also like to share that to be LGBT and to be in compliance with God’s rules at the same time is very much possible.

My love and acceptance for LGBT are unconditional, and I will always extend my best support to them, but at the same time, I care for them. This is why I am so concerned about homosexual practices being healthy. With our advocacy for LGBT Human Rights, we should also encourage a healthy homosexual lifestyle.

We should propagate that we are LGBT, we cannot change, and LGBT has as much the right to love as much as any human being does. But, we should also raise awareness regarding refraining from engaging in unhealthy homosexual practices.

I appeal to you for your co-operation to show to the world that homosexuality is about love, and I invite you to join me in my mission to promote a healthy LGBT culture worldwide.

In this way, we will ensure the health of our LGBT community and raise the chances of getting accepted by the world.

Comments are welcome under this post.

With much love and great support,

Perry Ramen

      Thank you Perry Ramen for sharing your ideas with us. I have supported LGBT and I will always support it even if the whole world is against it.

      Hi there,

      This is a really interesting perspective on homosexuality. Religion and homosexual have had a complicated relationship together, and for many people, they find it difficult to be both LGBTQ+ and religious. That being said, some people are able to fit both aspects of themselves into their lives comfortably.

      Some of the things I have learned in my Sociology courses so far is that it is important to let people live their lives the way they want to. What that means, is letting people who are gay and religious be celibate if that is their choice. There is nothing wrong with that if that is a person’s own personal choice. However, that must also be met with the same kind of respect and fairness. It is important to let people who want to engage in certain behaviors, live their lives, as long as everything is safe and consensual, and nobody is harmed.

      Your conclusion that “God is right when he says that we shouldn’t (practice) homosexuality” is ultimately your opinion. That is how you interpreted the Bible and other religious texts and pieces. That is not how every person views the same texts and pieces. Your opinion and beliefs are valid, please remember that. However, remember that many others may not share those same beliefs.

      To take a more Psychological perspective on your post, it is important to be mindful of one’s wording. The way you have described certain behaviors as “filthy” and “unhealthy” can make those who do engage in these behaviors and lifestyles feel bad about themselves. Already, being LGBTQ+ can come with many challenges, and having words such as “filthy” and “unhealthy” being used to describe them and their behaviors, it can really affect their mental health.

      On a more personal level, there are some things I am comfortable with, but there are also some things I am not comfortable with. But that does not give me the right to describe what other people do as something “immoral.”

      To end this on a more positive note, I will just say that I think it is great you are opening up about your thoughts and feeling regarding this topic. I feel as though it helps to have these conversations to get a better understanding of other people’s perspectives.

      All The Ways,
      Nathan

      Thank you for your reviews. I appreciate and thank you for the valuable feedback. RFGN is an open platform where everybody is free to voice out their opinions. Our aim is to learn from your feedback to improve the quality of our services and provide better information, education & support to our members. By unhealthy and immoral sexual lifestyle I mean LGBTs practising acts such as playing unsafe and transmitting HIV and other sexually transmissible diseases to other people, anal penetration, anal fisting, anal rimming, threesomes, gay orgies, playing in public toilets which are used by straight people & children also, cheating on their partners. Gay people practising anal sex find themselves fucking shit and end up having shit on their fingers and their sex; its filthy and disgusting and the smell is disgusting also. I believe that such behaviours demotes the opinion that society has about LGBT people, it hinders LGBT acceptance and induces homophobia in the world. I do believe in LGBT Love and do understand that LGBT people have natural feelings and desires for love and sex, but I’m just trying to say that certain sexual practices, be them gay or straight, are not in line with moral values and should be talked about openly for educational purposes and to promote a change to healthy sexual practices.

      Hello,
      Since this article tried to connect LGBT with religious scriptures, I would like to share 1 fact that is not all mythologies or religious scriptures are against LGBT. You can find several traces of presence and acceptance of LGBT during the ancient time, and by mythologies I genially mean about Indian mythologies.
      Talking about the other point which the author spoke about is the health issues, well upto certain limit he is right. But it doesn’t mean that everyone who is a part of it is suffering for the same thing. As far as precaution is being taken, it can be avoided. There are many living healthy and happy lives with their partner. Of course, there are many who are having issues. In a nutshell its basically about BEING INFORMED.

      Homosexuality and religion is a big debate in the world and RFGN cannot ignore the subject. People are living in dilemma, hindrance and persecution and need help. We are not imposing our point of view on the subject but its an open discussion in which people are free to participate or not. The title of the article has a question mark ? in it meaning that the article is a question and the last line says “Please, leave a comment on this thread if you would like to share your point of view.”. The whole point of RFGN is to be a center for discussion and awareness around subjects like LGBT Support, LGBT Health, LGBT Human Rights, LGBT & Spirituality, LGBT Persecution, etc… Spirituality is part of life and the subject cannot be left out. I understand that some people are not comfortable with this subject and its totally fine. If there wasn’t a debate about whether homosexuality should be legalized or not in some countries and cultures and LGBT people were not facing any difficulties or persecution in some countries there would have been no point for RFGN and RFGN would not exist. Everybody has a word to say about the subject of homosexuality be it for or against it to share awareness on this global issue and find global solutions. There is only one solution to this issue “Its to promote LGBT Love” and reject immorality. By doing so people, nations and religions will understand that homosexuality is in fact about love and homosexuality will become accepted globally.

      Bible > 1 Corinthians > Chapter 6 > Verse 10

      …Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who submit to or perform homosexual acts, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor verbal abusers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.…

      Homosexuality is not a Sin, Not a Sickness
      For many centuries, the Christian Church’s attitude toward human sexuality was very negative: sex was for procreation, not for pleasure; women and slaves were considered property to be owned by males; and many expressions of heterosexuality, like homosexuality, were considered sinful. Such tradition often continues to influence churches today. Many churches teach that women should be subordinate to men, continue to permit forms of discrimination against peoples of color, and condemn homosexuals. They say that all homosexual acts are sinful, often referring to their interpretation of scripture.

      Other churches today are influenced by a century of psychoanalytic thought promoted through a powerful minority in the field of medicine. They see homosexuality as some kind of sickness. Although this view has now been soundly discredited by the medical profession, some churches and clergy continue to be influenced by the idea. They say that homosexuals are “imperfect” and in need of “healing.”

      The Good News is that, since 1968, when Metropolitan Community Church was founded, the emergence of a strong lesbian and gay community, and the conclusions of new scientific studies on homosexuality have forced the Christian Church to reexamine these issues. A growing number of biblical and theological scholars now recognize that Scripture does not condemn loving, responsible homosexual relationships. Therefore, gay men and lesbians should be accepted – just as they are-in Christian churches, and homosexual relationships should be celebrated and affirmed! ( Knowledge from Rev. Elder Don’t Eastman)

      This article is a very courageous take on such a sensitive topic. Kudos to the writer for taking such a bold step, as the article rightly mentions that it is one of the most controversial topics of all time.

      Homosexuality cannot be discussed without the religious factor coming into play.

      The article was thought-provoking for both LGBT and straight as well as religious and non-religious people.

      The sharing of personal life experiences and transition from LGBT to celibacy also makes the article relatable and easier to feel. It is good to see that people revisit their life choices, read up, and remake their choices consciously.

      Not just that, the article also encourages other people to take the same pattern under consideration.

      As far as the arguments that have been presented in the article are concerned, the concerns of portraying a positive image of the LGBT community and promoting a healthy lifestyle are valid. The religious factor is also correctly presented.

      Though the use of words like “immoral” and “filthy” might sound judgmental, the tone of the articles and the author’s concerns neutralizes it.

      It cannot be denied that in a world where the LGBT community is still not accepted and is considered an abnormality and mental illness, publicly practicing sexuality might push society farther away from accepting homosexuality. And it would not hurt to be a little care for the greater good of getting the rights to practice the sexuality later on publicly.

      Celibacy, though, is a tough decision and more power to Perry, but it might not be something that can be considered for many.

      In the end, everyone has their own opinions, and there is no compulsion that something that works for one should work for everyone. Everyone should figure out what brings them contentment in life.

      Thank you for sharing your story with us. Indeed homosexuality is a gift of nature and it is essential to embrace our sexual orientation. However, it is equally important to value our physical and mental health. It is high time that we educate ourselves about the consequences of any sexual activity on our health and experience love in a healthy way.

      First of all, it’s love. Secondly, it’s a widely debated topic. There are so many aspects to this debate. These aspects range from the medical point of view to the religious point of view. I’m neither a know-it-all medical professional nor a perfectly religious person. I’m simply human learning and accepting new thing every day. I would like to summarise my thoughts about this topic here.

      The fact is that most of the religions, including Christianity and Islam, have traditionally opposed and condemned homosexuality Churches and the pope was against any form of homosexuality. Punishments were given to those involved in such activities.

      I think cultures and religions undergo evolution as time passes. The modern era has just given a new shape to this world with the rise of atheism and other schools of thoughts. Traditional religions are either declining or evolving. In my opinion, to survive the modern era, religions are changing. For example, Christianity has now accepted things that were lance strictly prohibited. The things are changing so rapidly that spiritual leader of Christianity Pope Francis has been giving indications in October 2020 support of Same-sex civil unions. No one could have imagined this happening a couple of decades ago. Well, you know the Time! Time decides many things. I guess Christianity will soon accept LGBT completely. It won’t be a sin, officially. And to my farthest imagination, we will be seeing gay bishops soon.

      Now coming towards the medical point of view: the concept of gender (in addition to the concept of sexual orientation) is changing. Very long ago, we had two genders biologically: male and female. Then there were three genders. These three gender classifications persisted for a long time until when the 20th century ended with up with recognizing at least 5 sexes. The explanation about different sexes, genders and sexual orientation is beyond the scope of my comment.

      The only purpose of this making you read this lengthy review was to state that humans are diversified biologically and naturally! They have different sexual orientations and different sexual preferences. It’s all-natural.

      Now coming to the other aspect related to the LGBT community described by the author of this post: unhealthy and filthy sexual practices. These words sound a little harsh. However, it’s a truth that humans, including LGBT, perform some unhealthy sexual acts. Well, unhealthy is unhealthy, no matter if it’s someone’s personal choice. It remains unhealthy even when done under the banner of freedom of choice. These kinds of unhealthy sexual practices, as stated by the author, shouldn’t be encouraged particularly when there isn’t any reason to encourage them.

      In short, homosexuality is all about love and it’s more beautiful when practised in healthy and compassionate ways.

      Keep spreading the love!

      I’m not saying all, but some homosexuals are contributing to homophobia in the world.
